As luck would have it

Who can resist writing a St. Patrick’s Day post?

But this one is mostly a pity party. Why, you ask? Because this is what I was doing last year on St. Patty’s Day:

 

And as luck would have it, this is what I’m doing this year:

Don’t get me wrong. I love my job (have I mentioned that?) and it was my choice to not take today off for our traditional all-day lunch at Lynagh’s. Poor John has after-school detention, so he was stuck, too. (trouble maker) I’m saving up my vacation days for our trip to Disney in 18 more days! While there, John and I plan to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style with “beers around the world” at Epcot.

For now I will go back to writing outstanding articles and blog posts (like this one I just did about the fashion dilemma of the day on www.outofthebigblue.com) in my little corner of the alumni association. Now and then I will take a break to pinch co-workers who forgot to wear green today. Those wearing UK blue will be given a pass.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! And GO BIG BLUE!!

  1. *Sigh… I’m also at work. But I was at work last year too… But the year before THAT I was in Destin, FL at a ginormous Irish restaurant celebrating St. Paddy’s Day in style.

    This whole “being responsible” deal is for the birds.
